How we use your information
This privacy notice tells you how we, Atlas Cloud, will collect and use your personal data for providing our services and gathering marketing information on the visitors to our website.
Why does Atlas Cloud need to collect and store personal data?

Will Atlas Cloud share my personal data with anyone else?
All visitors to our website are tracked via a third party called Lead Forensics. This is to enable us to keep marketing material relevant and not store any unnecessary data.
If we wish to pass your data onto a third party we will only do so once we have obtained your consent, unless we are legally required to do otherwise.
How will Atlas Cloud use the personal data it collects about me?
Atlas Cloud will process (collect, store and use) the information you provide in a manner compatible with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Atlas Cloud Ltd. is required to retain information in accordance with the law, such as information needed for income tax and audit purposes. How long certain kinds of personal data should be kept may also be governed by specific business-sector requirements and agreed practices. Personal data may be held in addition to these periods depending on individual business needs.
Under what circumstances will Atlas Cloud contact me?
Our aim is not to be intrusive, and we undertake not to ask irrelevant or unnecessary questions. Moreover, the information you provide will be subject to rigorous measures and procedures to minimise the risk of unauthorised access or disclosure.
